The New Normal: Personalized Medicine
The successful milestone of mapping the human genome was achieved through the Human Genome Project in 2003 and marked the beginning of a new “normal” for how we think about diagnosing, understanding, and treating diseases in the human species.
This area of science is expanding to cover a wide variety of challenges and opportunities, but there is a specific subset of the broader personalized medicine category which is both relevant and immediately beneficial to a diverse group of patients. Pharmacogenomics, the study of how variations in the human genome affect the response to medications provides helpful and beneficial insights into how patients will respond to medications.
Pharmacists are often the only resource in a patient’s care continuum that has comprehensive visibility to all of the medications the patient is taking. When possible, many pharmacists are the first to recognize potential drug-to-drug interactions that could be harmful for your clients. The opportunity to further enhance your insight to include insights into genetic predictors of medication response and efficacy is possible today.
The GenoPATH™ Difference
GenoPATH™ offers a platform that supports collaboration across a patient’s full continuum of providers in order to support the best outcomes for the patient. We value the important role that pharmacy plays in patient care and we are bringing solutions which integrate genetic testing and comprehensive medication reconciliation together to create a comprehensive personalized profile of an individual which highlights how that patient will likely metabolize certain medications. This decision support is a valuable tool for physicians and the entire continuum of provider support and can be especially beneficial to pharmacists.
Together with you, we can significantly improve healthcare outcomes for patients on multiple medications or with complex treatment plans while reducing their costs associated with medications and/or dosages inherently ineffective or even harmful to them.
Contact us if you would like to learn more about how to integrate the GenoPATH™ comprehensive medication management solutions and enhanced decision support into your pharmacy workflow.
